Somerset Maugham's RAIN...

my version!

Some time ago, the late Mayor Koch of New York City, established the John Hour, in order to discourage men who patronized prostitution. I thought it was a good subject to create a work based on Somerset Maugham' s RAIN. So I created Rain and used the image of Mayor Koch as Reverend Davidson chastising  a prostitute during a rain storm. The Mayor came to the gallery, saw the piece and gave a huge laugh!

The Natives Americans!

I got interested in the  native Americans when I began to support the Lakota which are part of the Sioux. In New York City there is the Museum of The American Indian. Very interesting to learn about the first inhabitants of  this country.
Thee Museum of the American Indian is located at
1 Bowling  Green

For many tourists New York City is just a concrete jungle with skyscrapers. They donĀ“t know the countless of old buildings with fabulous architecture all over town.

Victory for Bulls!

A quintessential New York cat!
He works for the pet store on 72nd street, between West end and Broadway. The noise of the city doesn't bother him, he welcome all the customers to the store including the dogs.
